Scott Pruitt’s Resignation Letter is a Strong Argument Against God’s Existence

Scott Pruitt‘s letter officially resigning as head of the Environmental Protection Agency was a mix of sycophancy and God-talk coming from one of the most corrupt politicians in a Cabinet full of grift.

Variations on the word “bless” appear four separate times in the letter, but this is really the worst of it:

My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people. I believe you are serving as President today because of God’s providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people. Thank you again Mr. President for the honor of serving you and I wish you Godspeed in all that you put your hand to.

God brought Donald Trump to the White House.

God enabled Pruitt to help destroy a world that Christians believe God created.

God did nothing as Pruitt committed scandal after scandal.

At the same time, God didn’t prevent Pruitt’s underlings from speaking out about that corruption or stop a teacher from demanding Pruitt’s resignation in a public, viral way earlier this week.

“God’s providence,” as we’re experiencing it today, has made our world a worse place. The people speaking out against Pruitt have made it better.

This resignation letter may be the strongest argument against God’s existence we’ve seen in a long time.
